How would I go about hosting another website on my droplet? I would like to be able to go to www.exampledomain.com and then have it point to another directory, so I can have a few different websites that have the same IP

Hello, there

If you are using Apache you could add a second Vhost, here’s a guide on how to do that:

If you are using Nginx, you need to add a second server block:
